Black Forest Cottage Cheese Cake

Black Forest Cottage Cheese Cake




My son absolutely LOVES cherry season so as soon as these sweet little things start showing up at the local markets, they become a staple around here.  I knew every time I would eye these in the fridge I would have to create a recipe using them and here we are.  A decadent, fudgey chocolate cake with a chocolate swirl and chunks of sweet cherries.  So delicious, so macro friendly and the fact that I used cottage cheese here not only lowers the carbs for each huge slice, but packs in some solid extra protein (over 25 grams!).  and can I just tell you, it is heaven!  I’ve included my chocolate Creami recipe as a bonus here, but my vanilla Creami base would be absolutely amazing as well.  So, without anymore delay, let’s make…



To make:

Blend all ingredients, except your topping, till silky smooth in a high speed blender. Pour into an 8×8 inch parchment paper lined baking dish.  Top with your cherries and still in, then drizzle and swirl your Cocoa Bar on top. Bake at 350 for 25-27 minutes.  Let cool completely. Top with a scoop of Mocha Creami, some whip, fresh berries or enjoy all on their own.  You can’t go wrong here.

Makes a total weight of 580 grams.
